Kenya’s coach Sagar Lakhani has said he expects a very tough game against Rwanda. “I have had the chance of watching the Rwanda team. But my boys have had enough days of rest and we have planned accordingly to counter Rwanda’s strong points,” added Lakhani.
Yves Rwasamanzi, the Rwanda coach made it clear that they have prepared well for the semi final. “We have corrected our mistakes and are ready for the game,” added the coach.
Uganda’s coach made it clear that they have been serious since the tournament started and they are determined to win the trophy.
